Top 10 female characters in literature I would like to trade places with

0 comentarios
  1. Scarlett O’Hara (Gone with the Wind): It’s all about the dresses. And the food. Well, and the dresses. And Clark Gable as Rhett Butler doesn’t hurt. It probably wasn’t an easy time to be a woman, but the more I think about it, the more I’m convinced that, given the opportunity, I would have acted exactly like her.
  2. Katniss Everdeen (The Hunger Games): Sure, she can be a little (or a LOT) clueless, and her endless back and forth had me wanting to strangle her at times, but she does survive two Hunger Games. And a war. And, in the end, she gets the guy .So, yeah. Not bad.
  3. Hermione Granger. (Harry Potter) She’s smart. She’s a good friend. She’s the only one in the whole series who actually read Hogwarts, A History. She fights alongside Harry till the bitter end. In a lot of ways, she’s the glue that holds it all together. Oh, and she ‘gets’ it, long before Harry and Ron do.
  4. Josephine March. (Little Women) A bit clichéd, I know, but she IS a writer. And she’s the only one who has the courage to follow her dreams. Plus she gets Plumfield and turns it into this enchanting school. And I always had a thing for Professor Baher.  
  5. Anne Shirley. (Anne of Green Gables) When I was little I wanted to see the world as she did, with magic and beauty everywhere. I still kind of do. I still kind of want the red hair, too. And, yes, I still want Gilbert Blythe.
  6. Elizabeth Bennet (Pride and Prejudice): She gets Mr. Darcy. I repeat, she gets Mr. Darcy. Oh, and she also defies conventions, manages to confront the things about herself that make her happy ending much less likely, and, in the end, chooses her own path.
  7. Daenerys Targaryen (Game of Thrones): It’s all about the dragons. And the skimpy outfits. And, did I mention she has three dragons? We still don’t know how her story will end, but, all things considered, her chances of “winning” look better than most of the guys in this series.
  8. Beatrice (Much Ado about Nothing): She has the best lines! And although she’s just as easily manipulated as the rest of the characters on this play, in the end, it seems the manipulation only managed to open her eyes to what she really wants. And she’s willing to fight for it.
  9. Éowyn (Lord of the Rings): She’s the only truly strong female character in Tolkien’s books. And, though, at first, her attachment to Aragorn kinda bugged me (he is CLEARLY not the guy for her), she ends up proving that she’s much more than whom she’s chosen to care for.
  10.  Lyra Silvertongue (His Dark Materials): She’s only twelve when the first book begins, but Lyra can read the alethiometer, ends up  traveling into other worlds, befriends Iorek Byrnison (the most amazing talking animal in literature), and earns the nickname “Silvertongue” after proving that words are the most powerful weapons of all.

*There are many more wonderful female characters in literature I would NOT trade places with for anything in the world. Maybe I can write a later post about that. This is just about those I’d trade places with.
